Book: Zuni Fetishes and Carvings
Paperback - brand new condition
By Kent McManis
This book offers the most complete guide to Zuni fetishes objects on the market today. In this deluxe, newly combined and updated volume, noted Indian trader Kent McManis explains the different types of fetishes with special emphasis on the two major traditional groups: the protective/healing group and the hunting group. He describes the many materials that Zuni artists work with today and introduces many skilled carvers, from those who have worked in this field for many years to relative newcomers. With over 160 photos of fetishes in full color and newly updated family trees for the carvers, this volume comprises the best general reference on the subject ever available for collectors.
